Lentil values are being taught in all primary schools around Australia.
The teaching unit was developed as part of a federal government project to support schools to teach values education in schools. The resources were delivered free to all Australian schools in 2009.
This unit was one of a series developed around values dilemmas designed to engage students with ethical decision-making in real-life contexts. An article written about Lentils enterprise inspired them to shape this unit which asks students to consider the values that underpin businesses both not-for-profit and commercial, integrity, honesty and compassion. The feedback from schools is that this unit was very successful and challenged young students to consider their actions and the drivers that lead people such as Lentils to create charitable enterprises.
The following is the teaching unit developed by education services Australia.
